12 Reasons For

Expert Reviews Are Average

This multimedia projector received an expert rating of 70 out of 100 from hifitest.de.

Only Released Seven Months Ago

This Acer data projector was only released seven months ago.

Acer Has Good Data Projector Reviews

Acer 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors have good reviews on average and across all projectors Acer is one of the better rated brands.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The H6520BD supports 3D image projection, unlike most of the other projectors that are a comparable age to the H6520BD which do not support 3D image projection.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection and we think the Acer H6510BD ($472.99) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Supports Full HD Projection

The H6520BD supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other recently released 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors do not support Full HD projection.

There are a number of alternative projectors which support Full HD projection currently available which you might want to consider including the Acer H6510BD ($472.99) which has better reviews.
